Running SpamD on Mac OS-X - Notes

Michael Schwern posted to Bugzilla (Bug # 4224):

I've just hand-written the startup files necessary to get spamd to startup at boot time on OS X. This was after the nth time I'd restarted my laptop and forgot to manually start up spamd and got an inbox of unfiltered mail. I figured others might find it useful and it could find a home in the spamd directory with the other startup files.

The directory can be dropped into /Library/StartupItems/ and spamd will load at boot time.

The startup script simply runs "spamd" which should be robust enough for most people. Otherwise the script will have to be processed as part of the SA build process.

This directory is attached as file SAspamd.tar.gz
